Nikola Corp. unveiled its new lineup of zero-emissions vehicles amid an electrically charged, rock concert-like atmosphere this week in Scottsdale.
The Budweiser Clydesdales posed for photos at the event, Gov. Doug Ducey championed Arizona’s commitment to economic growth and other speakers extolled the vision of a pollution-free future as two semi trucks drove onto the Westworld stage amid cheering by 2,000 visitors from 49 nations.
If Nikola lives up to the hype, all the hoopla will be deserved.
The Phoenix-based company stands on the cusp of not only putting Arizona manufacturing in the national spotlight but revolutionizing the transportation industry.
